It had to be done.
CoroCoro reveals that Sceptile and Swampert are looking forward to Mega evolutions, making them the second full set of starter Pokemon to get Megas (after the Kanto starters, of course).
So which one looks like it'll be your favorite, either in design or battle or whatever?
- Reportedly Grass/Dragon. This gives Sceptile a crippling weakness to Ice (not unusual among either Grass or Dragon types), but double resistances to Grass, Water, and Electric.
- Reported ability: Lightningrod. Okay, so its typing doesn't exactly need the added immunity to Electric, but the boost in Sp.Atk will be welcome just the same (plus the shielding an ally from Electric in multi battles).
- Admittedly, we already know everything about Blaziken's Mega Evolution: It gets Speed Boost and is considered totally OP by Smogon battlers.
- Reported ability: Swift Swim. Swampert always was the slow and bulky one of the group.
(Disclaimer: I'd say more about Blaziken or Swampert, but I don't have much experience with them.)
